to have those hundreds of offices all over the key states in ohio and elsewhere because they wouldn't have the money to open them and the republican nominee will be sitting there with substantially more super pac support. just because this time obama as an incumbent was able to spend them to a draw should not suggest that that's what happens next time. >> i read in a couple of places that by the week of the election president obama had attended 221 fund raisers, far more than any other incumbent president in our history in 24 states and the time that is used to raise this money has to figure into our reckoning of its impact, right? >> this is a disaster for the country, this being the fact that we don't have presidential public funding and instead we have the incumbent president of the united states spending that much time out trying to raise money for his campaign instead of worrying about the economy, national affairs and international affairs. you may recall one of the debates romney went after obama saying that after the libyan incident you left washington and you went to nevada. that

. in this state they ignored this attack by the obama administration on religious liberties, which obamacare and -- almost 80% of the catholics in this state voted for liberal democrats, abortion. guy think it was a big problem by the church not speaking out. they seem to be so afraid of lawyers and being sued that they were calworks -- were cowards, especially from the pulpits. they totally neglected it. i don't blame the republicans. i blame the catholic church. host: we are asking republicans only this morning to discuss the future of their party, basically because of all the voices that continued on the weekend, republican voices, leaders of the party talking about what mitt romney has said about why he lost and how to afford. rick santorum, a former pennsylvania senator, writes -- today."n "usa as for another republican voice, marco rubio. this is a store in "politico" this morning. -- a story. there's a little of what the senator had to say.

to be the leader of the united states government if that's what he think government comes down to. the things he was describing that the obama administration did, that is called governing. >> yeah. let's go to david. why would he use words like this. this is the way he thinks unless he's being scripted. this was unscripted. this is the pure romney. >> chris, i was the first guy in the media to see the 47% remark and when i saw it i couldn't believe it. maybe there was a slight chance that maybe he was saying to it play up to that crowd, that's what they wanted to hear. now when we hear him talk about voters he didn't just say he was bought off, that obama won their votes through bribery. he said i ran a campaign of big ideas. so they are the moochers, they are victims who will pay them the most. in the end what happens, mitt romney portrays himself as a victim of the victims. so just confirms all the worst impressions from the 47% rant and now you have republicans running away from him and basically saying hey don't let the car elevator door hit you on the way out. >> let me go to one thoughtful
, every battleground state with the exception of north carolina does barack obama now have a mandate? >> i don't think so because they also re-elected the house republicans. whether people intended or not, we've got a divided government. >> reporter: so you don't think there's a mandate here. >> i don't because then they would have put nancy pelosi in charge of the house of representatives. see, i think these idea that we talked about i think they're popular ideas. this is a very close election. unfortunately, divided government didn't work very well the last two years. we are going to have to make sure it works for the next two years. that means, i think, both parties have to talk to each other. >> reporter: diane sawyer asked speaker boehner if you are now the de facto leader of the republican party. and his answer was, oh, i wouldn't think so. paul ryan is a policy wonk. >> i take that as a great compliment from john. >> reporter: is that your role in the republican party, the house policy wonk? >> i have also been one of the house policy wonks. my role is to continue to be a champion o

with president obama at the white house. lee saunders, president of asfcme, the american federation of state, court and municipality state county and municipal employees said the coalition that re-elected president obama would remain intact to pressure lawmakers during the standoff over the fiscal curve. >> what we're going to do is keep our members mobilized and organized in certain communities across the country. we're going to another campaign, we won the election but we're going into another campaign now. >> for his part president obama reiterated on wednesday the election had delivered a clear verdict on the question of whether taxes should be raised on income over $250,000. >> if there was one thing that everybody understood it was a big difference between myself and mr. romney it was when it comes to how we reduce our deficit i argued for a polled, responsible approach, and part of that included make sure the wealthiest americans pay a little bit more. i think every voter out there understood that that was an important debate. and the majority of voters agreed with me. >> president ob
florida total, barack obama did when the state of florida barely edging out al gore. another problem for our state. florida, you can spell it without the. and honestly, if you go to that date county election bureau official website it says election ready. it does. almost impossible this could happen. twelve years ago. everyone remembers 2000. they could not figure out which will. people of florida, if you are behind -- year in a left turn lane with and marijuana pointing left and behind a car, usually is to people in the 1998 buick. a light changes, there's a green arrow pointing left. with the flock. usually have to wait a couple of cycles. what i want to do is to make it more friendly for florida voters. instead of using words, pictures. you would go by poking under candid it's eyeballs. follow what happened, the poke up their own eyeballs. the ballot was really, really long. long questions are written by lawyers from mars. at first it was an english, and then it was in spanish. then it was in creole and then calling on. by the time you get to the yes or no part you have to go back
it will be the united states, which switched its position during the obama administration from defending doma to arguing that it is unconstitutional. it has recommended to the court that it grants cert in the third case. -- windsor case. the windsor case from the court circuit andy gill case from the other circuit. the winsdor is mor likely because the justice apartment has recommended bridge of justice department has recommended. i would be surprised if the supreme court does not grant review in that case. and we do not get a decision on the constitutionality of doma. hee other two case -- t famous case is the prop eight case from california. that is from a ninth-circuit appeals decision, which by 201 vote struck down prop eight. the supreme court denied cert. the supreme court would be to affirm the ninth-circuit opinion and prop eight be unconstitutional. it is a big question with the court will do. their arguments are made that you do not have to review this case. it is about california. let it be. let the ninth-circuit decision stay in place. you do not have to take the case dice.l-- roll the i hav

. we were all paying attention to the election, re-election of barack obama war is breaking out in the middle east? what, what? >> when did that happen? [laughter] for the last 18 months we've been focused on the united states or the arab spring or iran's nuclear weapons. we've not focused on israel. but israel looks all around its neighborhood, and it says we are beset on every single one of our borders. we are surrounded. we have a syrian war that could threaten to spill over, hezbollah in southern lebanon attacking israel. we have an unstable jordan, we have on our southern border the one thing that we had to keep the peace for the last 40 years, egypt. egypt now has a new government, the muslim brotherhood government. they have said they're going to reconsider that peace agreement they've had for the last 40 years. the sinai peninsula which is a desert, a demilitarized zone between israel and egypt, al-qaeda's set up shop there, so the fact that you now have the egyptian prime minister going to gaza and either trying to broker a deal or if no deal to be had, siding with gaza
much a purple state. i do not think it is definitely a democratic state. we have to see beyond obama because his candidacy and election were quite unique. to echo what you said about congress, i think we have to find leaders of both parties who are willing to bargain. at the obama's -- i think problem on that, he does not have the iou's to call in. he does not have a lot of arrow's a dent in his quiver to use. but we could use bob dole, those people that solved a long-range picture and not just today. >> excellent. speaking of long-range picture, few people can bring that to the party then the way richard norton smith chan. going back several hundred years. >> oh, gosh. [laughter] thank you. it is an honor to be on this panel. i have bought more than once in the storm surge of words that has washed over us over the last 10 days, there is a tendency, cable tv has 24 hours to fill, the internet has everything to fill. there is a tendency to over analyze. two years ago at this exact point, we were all being told that barack obama was in all likelihood a one-term president. we were talki
to actually have a budget for the first time in four years for the united states of america. and again, barack obama is going to look at his legacy and looking at markets. he has a terrific opportunity right here and right now to embrace small business, get the markets growing again and really do a lot for his legacy in the long run. rick: simon, americans do seem to want to see a certain level of cooperation between the parties. you know, but this is a president who has not really shown a willingness to reach across the aisle. now in his second term does that change? >> well, i don't agree with the first statement but i think that he has made it clear from his statements of the last few days that he expects to work with john boehner and republicans and mitch mcconnell in the senate to try to, you know, tackle a few big things. i think one of the things my, the other guest said, which is just fallacious and wrong and shouldn't be repeated is that the idea that the raising rates on people over $250,000 is going to hit a majority of small business owners. >> simon, y a small business. you're a p
. >>> president barack obama may be asking senator john kerry to be his next defense secretary. the president is considering a rearrangement of his national security team. according to reports, kerry would prefer to be secretary of state but that job will almost positively be offered to suzanne rice. >>> the president was elected to a second term and at least two want to leave the united states. we will tell you more about a petition that is hitting the white house and what several states are demanding from the president. >>> in overnight news, they braved the cold weather getting their hands on one of the hottest games of the year. this was the scene in san francisco where 400 people were lined up on market street. they were there for the new call of duty block operations 2 and -- black ops 2. >> i seen some of it and i really liked it so i came to buy it. >> some came as early as 5:30 to get their hands on the game. >> also out in antioch, dozens of people came to get that game and according to a survey, one in four people are expected to call in sick today to now play their new game. >> an
was the campaign? >> well, first it was a very close election in ohio and ohio was one of key states, even if we won ohio, turns out the electoral vote count would have gone to president obama. we lost by two points in ohio. recall back in 2004 when john kerry lost to george bush he would often say both publicly and to me on the floor of the senate, but for half the people that could fit in the ohio state stadium called the horseshoe i would be president today. it was a very narrow victory. i do think there were some reasons that are almost technical that some of you understand well. there are some folks here from silicon valley who are very good at social media and their turnout efforts, the democrats, were quite effective. if you look at the numbers, after the fact, the turnout for democrats among their base was better than we expected. i would say better than they expected based on their polling and their sampling. so, you know, they did a better job than we did getting their voters to the polls. mitt romney got fewer votes than john mccain in ohio and still came within two points. the techno
obama's election night speech. >> we're not as divided. we are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions and we remain more than collection of red states and blue states. we are and forever will be the united states of america, and together, with your help and god's grace, we will continue our journey forward, and remind the world just why it is that we live in the greatest nation on earth. >> the man did more than anybody else to help barack obama win a second term, top strategist, david axelrod. >> david, you must be feeling pretty great. >> oh, yeah. be in that room, with that crowd and the sense of -- joy and idealism and patriotism, frankly, that was evident in that room and then today the president came by the campaign headquarters and spoke to the young volunteers. not volunteers but staff, and it was a very moving, a moving encounter. >> when was the moment that you thought, eave got this. it's all gone to plan? >> you know, when the votes started getting counted, we knew pretty quickly we have -- you know, we have a fairly sophisticated model. we have projections. we k
obama as president of the united states of america, and, you know, as a country, it was a remarkable time. it was a different election. in the midst of a financial crisis, a crisis -- i forgot my clock, otherwise i would go on for 45 minutes. [laughter] a financial crisis that really started here in the united states, but brought almost the entire global economy to its knees, and in the course of that election, and with president obama taking oches, we really -- office, we really, as a country, were at a cross roads where to go next with the system that was a broken status quo. go back as a country to the stable financial regulation, boring banking after the last major financial crisis, the great depression, boring, but effective, decade upon decade of financial stability that had orerred in remarkable era of growth for the country. unfortunately, broken down piece by piece leading up to the financial crisis. would we double down on the system? take those banks that were so large and so interconnected and so politically powerful that our leaderships decided that any one of which, if
-elect president barack obama. millions of womens votes who helped us elect a record number of women to the united states. as you look forward, understand that you are looking into the future. the future of empowerment of women in america. you saw some of these faces yesterday. among the new members elect. i said then that they were part of the most diverse caucus in the history of the world, the first time the body would have a power with a majority of women and minorities as its strength and we're very, very proud of that. said yesterday we could not have the majority, but we have the gavel. excuse me. we don't have the gavel. we don't have -- we have our own gavel. we have something more important. we have unity. we do not have the gavel. we do not have the -- majority. but we have unity. i think our caucus this morning demonstrated that very clearly. so, i come here with my sisters when i came to congress 25 years ago, there were about 23 members of congress who were women. out of 435. just think of that. 11, 12 democrats, 11 republicans. something like that. today, we have over 60 house democ
's an understanding of government that to me renders him unfit to be the leader of the united states government. if that's really what he thinks that government comes down to. because the things he was describing that the obama administration did, that is called governing. >> yeah. i think -- same question to you, david, why would he use words like this? i think it's the way he thinks unless he's being scripted. 47% was unscripted. this is unscripted. this could be the pure romney. >> i was the first guy in the media to see the 47% remark. when i saw it i couldn't believe it, but i thought maybe there was a slight chance that maybe he was saying it to play up to the that crowd. he knew that's what they wanted to hear. but now when we hear how he talks about voters, he didn't just say yes they were bought off, that obama won the their votes through bribery. he said i ran a campaign ever big ideas, but these other people out there, they don't care about it. they're just in it for themselves, so they are the moochers, they are victim who are looking at who will pay them the most. in the end what h
over the weekend was thailand and late last night, president obama became the first bt to ever visit mee you mar. he met with the national league of democracy there along with secretary of state hilary clinton. he spoke with the president and said his trip is not an endorsement of the new government, which is in the middle of a transition to democracy, but he did praise the country for shaking off its military rule and press the government for more reform. obviously we're having a little bit of technical problems, but the president said the steps the president has taken for release of the prisoners and his commitment to work with the u.s. on human rights dialogue will unlease the incredible potential of that beautiful country. this is obama's first trip overseas since his reelection shows he is serious about shifting america's focus leastward. the two are continuing to fire rockets and israel has blamed hamas for does sends of arrests since the violence started. more "bill press show" after the break. we'll be right back. here in our own country. >> it's an iss
's failure to build on mccain's votes than obama doing anything. mr. obama won the woman vote. blacks and asians but waits the hispanic vote that really nailed romney. 71% of la teen yoz voted for the president. that is the difference in florida, virginia, colorado, nevada. other states as well. romney took white males and independents by a significant margin but when you bunch it up, it was an entitlement vote this year, american families earning less than $30,000 a year broke big for the president. 62% to 35. it was clear left wing ideology did not win the day for barack obama. big spending on federal programs did. that is the key. because many in the media would have us believe liberal ideology was confirm bid this election. it was not. however, however, secularism is certainly eroding traditional power, those americans attend religious services voted for romney 59%39%. problem is church going is on the decline. here is an example. despite controversial insis stens some catholic entities provide birth control and after pillses, but only 30% of american catholics now attend weekly m
not by the opponent but by the super pac. we had $100 million spent by the president in nine states, $100 million on the air which is more than what mccain spent in its entirety. >> i think house races had an impact because barack obama, sherrod brown, governors, they had some definition. so that outside spending is a little less nefarious. it's still tough to deal with. but if you're not known it's going to be an imact about this. there's a term about politics which is the amount of television you buy. it means the average viewer sees the ad 10 times. in this election the republicans super pacs were at 9,000 or 10,000 points. i spent a lot of nights in hotel rooms there. and you turn on to tell vision. it was wall to wall political act and in many of those markets you see two or three ads. there is strong differences on this but we had one individual, one spend 100 million on the presidential direction. one person will try. there will be soul searching on the republican side. it had all this money. i don't think it's going away. but this is a big question in 2016, the democrats and republicans w
. and it was litigated on the tax issue and on the tax issue obama won the argument. moving into the fiscal cliff situation, he has a strong hand. the public is with him. >> bill: right. 49% say states should legally recognize same-sex marriages. >> of course, you saw big wins in maryland, defeated in minnesota. so moving forward -- maine -- so moving forward. that's the first time that you saw -- put it to a popular vote. those issues go forward. the numbers nationally are still divided but again i think a pivotal moment and those numbers again with the demographics will only grow and grow and grow. >> bill: on immigration reform, which i found interesting, of course, the difference is president obama had a comprehensive immigration reform package. mitt romney said people should self-deport. 65% of americans in this -- a week ago today said most illegal immigrants should be offered a chance to apply for citizenship. not sent back to mexico or wherever. >> you saw right after the election, prominent republicans come out and say okay, w
kerry, eyeing the secretary of state position may be asked to replace panetta. adding to the stakes of musical chairs, general allen's confirmation hearing to lead nato has been put on hold. during the campaign president obama called for nation building at home in his second term. he'll need to start by rebuilding his own team. john heilemann, you were a guest on the very first program of this show, there is a lot happening inside the president's inner leadership circle. how much of a problem do you think this is for him? >> first of all, let's not -- let's terry for a moment on -- i have been doing some math, 8,760, that's the number for today, 8,760 hours. >> wow. >> since alex wagner took over that chair and ever since -- >> subjected america to this program. >> and ever since then, root beer has flowed from the water fountains here at 30 rock and there has not been a cloudy day. >> and recess has been extended by 15 minutes. you're welcome america and 30 rocks. >> all lollipops and sunshine. congratulation on 8,760 hours in that seat and good luck on the next 8,760 hours. >> tha
defeated the president. mr. obama won the woman vote, blacks and asians. but it was the hispanic vote that really nailed romney. 71% of latinos voted for the president. that was the difference in florida, virginia, colorado, and nevada. other states were impacted as well. romney took white males and independents by significant margins. but when you bunch it all up together, when you bunch it up, it was an entitlement vote this year. american families earning less than $30,000 a year broke big for the president. 62% to 35%. so it's clear that left wing ideology did not win the day for barack obama, big spending on federal programs did. that's the key. because many in the media would have us believe that liberal ideology was confirmed by this election. it was not. however, however, secularism is certainly eroding traditional power. no question about it. once a week voted for romney 59, 39, the problem is church going is on the decline in this country. here is is an example. despite the president's incense tense that provide birth control and after pills. catholics supported obama 50% to
, that is part of why it matters barack obama is our president. a generation of children for thinking of president looking that way. people who grow up in states with women governors, you know, tulsi gabbard who's going to be sworn in in hawaii. she was just elected the other night. then it makes a much more likely at the earliest asian people are going to enter a list of public politics for the people around them to say hey, you should run, which is that crucial thing to get people at the beginning so they can amass the power to get the big jobs in the most powerful parts of their lives. >> and let's not leave out tammy baldwin. the person happens to be. >> i was just about to raise the question about tammy baldwin, another first come the first lesbian, the first gay center in american history. what special expectation or constrictions are possibilities might come with her being the first lesbian in the senate. i wonder if she might experience the same catch-22 that president obama experiences, where on the one hand he's not being as forceful as the black agenda, but on the other han

[applause] millions of women's votes that helped us elect a record number of women to the congress of the united states. as you look forward, understand that you are looking into the future. the future of empowerment of women in america. we saw some of these faces yesterday among the new members elect. i said then that they were part of the most diverse caucus in the history of the world, the first time a parliamentary body would have a party who had a majority of women and minorities. we are very proud of that. we said yesterday, we did not have majority but we have the gavel. excuse me -- but we do not have the gavel. [laughter] we have something more important -- we have unity. we do not have the gavel. we do not have the majority. but we have unity. i think our caucus this morning demonstrates that very clearly. so i come here with my sisters -- when i came to congress 25 years ago there were 23 members of congress who were women out of 445. just think of that. 12 democrats, 11 republicans,

[laughter] another proud moment for our state, our straight motto is florida, you can't spell it without the -- duh. actually if you go to the dade county election bureau official web site and it says election ready. it does. it says those words again, and doesn't almost seem impossible that this could happen? it was 12 years ago and everybody remembers 2000 where a lot of floridians could not figure out which hole, remember because there were arrows on the ballot and if you drive the arrows are a very confusing concept. to the people of florida. if you are in a left turn lane with an arrow on it, pointing left and you are behind your cards, usually two people in a 1998 hewitt -- [laughter] there is an arrow pointing left and the light changes and there is a green arrow pointing left. in the lane they light usually says left turn. >> debut have to wait a couple of -- a couple of cycles. so what i wanted to do and i was hoping we would do is to make it more
